Focus groups and surveys conducted by the Fort Worth Chamber identified that women-owned and operated businesses are sometimes overlooked. With more than 50 percent of local businesses currently owned and/or operated by women, the Women Influencing Business Steering Committee was formed to plan and implement new initiatives and programs to increase their visibility and to bring everyone to the same table of opportunity.
The Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce is now accepting applications for its Best Workplaces for Women Awards. Employee satisfaction and commitment are two necessary ingredients in developing high-performing organizations and attracting top talent. The Best Workplaces for Women designation is important in three ways:
Communication, Licensing & Social Media
